On one occasion for an advertisement for boots, Elliott Erwitt used a Great Dane and a Chihuahua hired from an agency. Dogs were ideal for shoe advertisements because they would often take a person's eye down to foot level. In the renowned image "New York City, 1974 (Dog Legs)," maybe second and third looks are needed to understand the whole picture. The first element noticed is the Chihuahua to the right, wearing a ridiculous little knitted beret and looking back from the camera with a look of bewilderment. The dog is so small that the black boots of its owner, on the dog on the right, resemble those of a giant. Finally on the left is Erwitt's punch line: the relatively enormous legs and legs of a Great Dane. The purpose of almost all of his photos, with or without dogs, is to elicit comment. In this case, he humorously comments on people and dogs, big and small.
Erwitt once said, "You just have to care about what's around you and have a concern with humanity and human comedy."
